-Please remember to sign your child in/out each day.
-Please check your child’s cubby for season-appropriate spare clothing. Accidents happen and we want your child to be as comfortable as possible in the event of one!
-Please remember that if your child has an allergy or dietary restriction, it is your responsibility to provide a substitution for menu items. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to Laura.
